Demolition crews tore down the large brown house at the corner of 56th St. and 17th Ave. today to make room for a new 7-story apartment complex.
The new apartments will feature 85 small efficiency dwelling units (called SEDUs), ground level retail and bike parking. No car parking is proposed (see our earlier story on the proposed “parking flexibility areas” in Ballard and Crown Hill.)
It’s right across the street from the new Valdok development and next door to the Keelson.
“The project aims to create a strong urban edge and a marker at the corner for people traveling in Ballard,” explains Greenbuild Development.
